Just read KD's contract has another player option for next year, so he'll be a free agent again after the season more than likely. Great move for him when the salary cap goes up in 2019. Warriors will have his full Bird rights and will be able to sign him to a long term max and still be able to keep some other players. Deal works out great for both KD and the Warriors.
Rockets won't be nearly as strong without Ariza. Suns are making great moves. Ayton, Booker, and Ariza might get them a playoff spot. I'm definitely gonna hit up some Suns games this season to see what they can do.
Mavs are probably over paying DJ for this one season while Doncic develops. That was the same amount of money the Clippers would have paid DJ for his player option, Mavs probably had the cap room and nobody else to give the money too anyway.
Lakers are supposedly gonna offer Boogie a huge contract. Apparently they can afford both Boogie and Lebron on max deals and still have money left.
All the signs pointed to the Lakers. This is a great move for the NBA and a great move for Lebron imo. My introduction to basketball when i was a child was the Lakers. I grew up watching Kareem, Magic, Worthy, Byron Scott, AC Green, Kurt Rambis and Pat Riley. Now Lebron gets to join them and build on his legacy. Sell out games at Staples Center are back. Lebron will bring them a title in 4 years, imo.
I don't see Kawhi joining them, not now anyway, only because he is still under contract. maybe he will join them next season. Cousins will be joining the Lakers. Maybe they can bring inShaq as a consultant to help dude out, channel his emotions better. I know Shaq was working with him in Sacramento. I'm pretty pumped for the upcoming season and now we all have a reason to say F the lakers again. I'm sure Lebron's first declaration will be to get rid of Lonzo Ball ha ha ha.
